The best places to buy your Christmas tree in Hong Kong

Real or artificial, tall or small: we’ve rounded up the best places to buy any Christmas tree in Hong Kong this Christmas.

People have been celebrating Christmas with an evergreen tree in the home since the Middle Ages. Unsurprising: they didn’t have to worry about the size restrictions of a Hong Kong apartment. But no matter how big, small, affordable, or durable you need your tree to be, and you’ll find a great option on this list. Surround it with presents for the kids or gifts to remind someone of Hong Kong. Or give a gift to your fellow man by doing your holiday shopping at these zero waste local stores, and place them under a reusable tree for a lower-impact Christmas. By Kate Lowe

RECOMMENDED: Once you’re all set with your tree, it’s time to do some Christmas shopping at one of these festive markets in the city.

Oncor Recycled Trees

Oncor Recycled Trees have been making Christmas more sustainable since 1980. Their trees are made from 100 percent tin-based recycled PVC plastic, and they’ll even send you a copy of the results from their latest PVC lab test if you ask. They offer an extensive range of trees for any budget, from a three feet Christmas Pine ($410) to a 12ft Block Forest ($6,540), but most trees fall within the $500 to 2,000 range. Every year, they hold an international photo contest, and the owner of the best decorated Oncor tree can win up to US$5,000. This year’s submission deadline is December 22, so send in your picture to compete with hundreds (we’re serious) of other entries. Order three to four days in advance, shipping is free to any address in Hong Kong.

  • Central

This Central store is one of the best-known options on this list. Anglo Chinese Florist’s noble firs and Douglas firs are shipped straight from Oregon. They’re available for order online and can be delivered and removed for an additional fee ($100-450). This Christmas’ pick up period is from December 23 to January 10; make sure to find the right schedule and pricing info for your district on their website. Check out their wreaths, garlands, and poinsettias too.

  • Yuen Long

Picking up a tree from Chun Hing Garden doubles as a winter getaway to their serene location in Yuen Long. If you can’t make it, though, online order is an option. These US-sourced trees are available in a wide range of breeds and sizes, and we recommend you call ahead to find out what they still have in stock. Our favourite thing about them, though, is their participation in EcoPark’s Christmas tree recycling programme. Aside from handling delivery and set-up for you, they’ll also pick up your tree and bring it to Tuen Mun’s EcoPark for recycling.

Venture to any Ikea physical store to make your Christmas tree purchase and pick up stockings, gift bags, wrapping paper, and Christmas ham on your way out the door.

This is also a great spot for Christmas potted plants ($99.9 to 399) and smaller, office-friendly tree-form decor.
